    Anyone used jSDN?

    I'm going to Apple, and it looks like Vacanti, which I've used for 1.5 decades doesn't have a version for Apple.

    how would I generate resistance numbers, in sub planing planing regimes, different trims, heels, etc.? Staying within Apple...

    For generating shapes it looks great- I'm going to download the free version

    Went with Vacanti, in parallel. Works great.

    hey drogen- does it move? if so, you must learn a lot. if not, it gets simpler

    Hoi,

    I'm doing hull design with NX for now 10 years for all Kind of ships. Also a lot of different Yards worldwide are using NX for hull design. For example Feadship and Amels in your neighborhood in the Netherlands.
